"The Israeli economy is ticking along nicely, defying the global trends; the
beachside cafes are full; Tel Aviv is even becoming the hot destination for
gay tourism. Why risk change when the status quo is so tolerable?And yet the
underlying assumption is almost certainly wrong. Israel does not have time
on its side. On the contrary, time is running out fast.Israel is surrounded
by evidence that it is, in the words of one Ha'aretz columnist, 'hurtling
down the slippery slope of pariahdom'."
